The experience uses special effects to create the next level of immersive experience at the attraction.
Ben Sweet, Madame Tussauds London's General Manager, explains: "Star Wars at Madame Tussauds takes the Madame Tussauds experience up a notch, as guests will not just be able to get close to their film heroes, they will be able to star alongside them and grab a selfie in specially recreated scenes of some of their favourite movie moments. We're working very closely with Disney and Lucasfilm to ensure 100 per cent authenticity and our team has had exclusive access to props, costumes, designs and even had a ‘sitting’ with one of the original Yoda models at Skywalker Ranch in California. Yoda's wax figure is now complete and the results are astonishing.
“But this experience is about much more than the figures. Guests will be able to step right into an atmospheric recreation of Yoda's swamp like Luke Skywalker did in The Empire Strikes Back and see the fiery lava of Mustafar as Anakin turns to the dark side in Revenge of the Sith. Guests will become truly immersed in the films in a new and exciting way. We hope to delight fans and give them a unique way to celebrate the Star Wars story."
